Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at WellPoint full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The company offers great pay, benefits, and has a great diversity program. They helped pay for my MBA and I have progressed in the company as a result.

Cons

It has become very large and the politics have grown with it. Strategy planning seems to start in June but is not solidified until near the end of Q1 of the following year. It would be helpful to hit the ground running at the beginning of the year and better yet to have a rolling plan.

Advice to Management

Decrease process as it impedes progress

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Consistent employment. Never any news of "downsizing".

    Cons

    Felt Underpaid for the amount of work. Worked an average of 5-10 hrs of overtime a week without compensation. Got more respect from the clients and general population than from company managment. Was told consisitently "It is what it is". High turnaround times (dictated by contract) increases stress level of the job. Lost 6 nurses in a month. There were only 12 on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Should be better compensation for the "professional" role desired by the corporation. Nurses continually have the highest "trustworthy" ratings on a consistent basis according to Press-Gainey. Profit before people was uttered many times in the office. You should review how much time and money are required for new hire re-training; it is more cost effective to keep you employees content. My opinion of overworked and underpaid was shared by many coworkers. Management was treated well.

    I worked at WellPoint as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is getting bigger and better everyday and there is a good chance to learn new things at work.

    Cons

    only work - no personal life, Pantry doesn't even have a coffee machine.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat employees as human beings and do not put their life at stake for company's prosperity.
